Construction site accidents
Construction is one of the most dangerous industries to work in. The HSE estimates that every year around 3% of workers sustain a work related injury. In 2014/15 there were 35 fatal injuries.
There are health and safety regulations enforced by the Health and Safety Executive. If you have had an accident on a construction site, there is a good chance that these were not being followed and we will be able to bring a claim for you against your employer or a contractor.
Our solicitors in London, York and Bristol have extensive experience of acting for workers in the construction industry who are injured or killed at work. There are many types of accidents on construction sites and ones we have dealt with include: scaffolding collapsing; falls from roofs; accidents involving ladders; accidents involving defective machinery; electrocution; manual handling.
Through working for Trade Unions for 100 years, we have an unrivalled expertise of such accidents.
